Strangely enough, although in real life I love talking about myself and hearing myself talked about, I’m horrible at writing “bio” pages. But some people wanted to know a little more about me than just what else I’ve written, so here I am. As you might have figured out by now, my “name” is Tasha Fierce. No, that’s not my government name. I’m a 32 year old Black feminist cis woman and Los Angeles native. My body type is one that society derisively labels “fat”, and I have chosen to reclaim that epithet. I love sex: talking about it, having it, and thinking about it. I’ve had a lot of different kinds of it. Hence, this blog.
I have been writing as long as I have been able to read, which is about 31 years now. I choose to use my writing to entertain, but also to raise awareness about social justice issues, educate, and foment positive change. Well, lately, mostly to entertain. I’ve kept some form of online journal since 1996. I didn’t really get into what y’all now call “blogging” until 2010, though. My blog used to be called Red Vinyl Shoes until I decided I wanted to change the name because I couldn’t comfortably use colors other than red in my design due to the name. I’m weird.
Here are some random adjectives that describe me: sarcastic, intelligent, funny, contradictory, eccentric, soft-hearted. I done learned a lot; seen a whole lot. I can quote a rap lyric applicable to almost any situation imaginable. I’ve been a wife. I’ve been a “side chick”. I’ve been a girlfriend. I’ve been called a “diva”, rightfully. But I’m trying to drink less of my own kool-aid. I am an Aries, Taurus rising, Leo moon. Astrological descriptions of personalities are pretty much the only kind of “woo” I’m into. For those who buy into the personality type thing, I’m an ENTP or INTP depending on my mood.
Things I appreciate: music, science, computer crap, comic book movies, disaster movies based on discredited scientific theories, documentaries, books, nudity, animals (not combined with nudity), plate tectonics, dancing, schadenfreude, being right. I’m big into Twitter (well, I was). I tweet politics, sex, random thoughts, and ratchetness at @misstashafierce.
